Rokoko: Driving a paradigm shift in animation

Headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark, and with teams located in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Athens, Rokoko’s vision is to give all creative teams access to quick, non-intrusive, and intuitive animation tools. With their Smartsuit Pro, creators can make 3D character animation all around the globe.

Accessible technology

Motion capture used to be a technology limited to large Hollywood studios with huge budgets and technical staff to operate the systems. But the Danish company Rokoko’s Smartsuit Pro, Smartgloves and Face Capture technology make it possible for creators to get access to create and edit professional 3D character animation quickly, intuitively and accessible anywhere.

Rokoko is driving a paradigm shift in how creators work with animation and digital motion. Along with the software tools, there is simply no part of the character animation process that you can’t solve within Rokoko’s ecosystem.

Watch Ian Hubert share his perspective on visual effects how he got started animating, and how Rokoko motion capture has changed his workflow and the way he works with character animation.
